Consolation Found in Religion, Bishop Brown Tells Graduates Man Likes Security,]" Peace, He Explains Class Taking as his text, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee", Bishop W. A. Brown of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia, stated in the baccalaureate sermon to the seniors of Parmville State Teachers College Sunday evening that this was not an era of pessimism but a time to find consolation in religion. Two things a man wishes to Attain are security, as expressed in the phrase "making a living" and peace Peace means joy. happiness, contentment, the pursuit of happiness us stated in the Declaration of Independence. We should look upon Christianity not as something to fear but as a great ami glorious tiift of the love of God. We need discipline, but not the negative discipline of the past, but u positive disciplne based on actuality of experience. The only way of attaining peace within one's soul and peace between peoples is l hough the positive discipline of experience as glorified m the following of religion.

Victory Garden Planned For Family Of Nine People The victory garden which has been a project of the Home Economics seniors for the past year and is under the teacher training department, has completed a very successful year. Through thorough planning a program for a year-round garden for a family of nine has been set up. The fresh vegetable products have been used for the table at the Home Management House, and those which ripen during the summer months will be canned since the House is not in use those months. The canning will be under the direction of Miss Evelyn Simpson, supervisor of Home Economics in the Farmville High School. The canning will be a cooperative project, done by high school pupils working on conservation. Utilization of these products will be taken care through the Home Management House and the student teaching program. During the late summer months a fall garden will be planted in order to have fresh vegetables available when the Home Management House is reopened in September, All of the surplus products will be canned or stored by the Incoming class of Home EconContinued on Page 4

With Service As Our Prime Goal We Go Out To Teach . . . This year, more than ever, as Farmville girls leave these halls for wider paths of learning an dservice, they have many fields open to them. Whatever may be their talents, whatever their ambitions, there is a position awaiting them. No longer is the step over from friendly college to the "cold cruel) world", but it is into a world of great promise, and a world of great need of their help, that they are stepping. And as tiny have a greater opportunity, so do they have a greater challenge, and a greater service to render. Their foremos desire cannot be a selfish one if they would join in the struggle for a peace composed (>!' liberty and justice. Whatever place they may choose to take as their own, their first criteria in choosing should be service. At the present, many young people are leaving the less lucrative professions to join the life of war and defense workers whose pocketbooka may be filled now, but whose heads are being filled with little of the knowledge that comes with working on some thought-provoking project. The defense work must be done. But the mere money that comes from it should never be the reason for entering it. If they can serve better ill that type of work, then they should go into it. But if by so doing they are giving up a chance for real service as a teacher, technician, nurse, or some other trained profession, they should hesitate more than a moment. They will be citizens of a great nation. The fundamental ideals on which that nation is built may well be their ideals, and the ideas that they will work to preserve. For as they go forth to work they go to serve. In the March issue of the Journal of National Education Journal, there was printed the following story in which one teacher tells of her experiences with this problem.

The Rotunda staff joins with the student body and faculty in expressing sym pathy to Miss Edith Sterens at the death of her father.

One would think that with exams and the usual suppressed devidtry that comes with them there would be lush dirt notes. However, either the choice bits are known only to a few or well—or— because plenty has happened. Plenty . . .

It is called "The Return of a Teacher." '"I am a teacher who left teaching last spring to get a job in Washington. As I stepped from the train at Union Station and as I walked through the depot, where one sees more tired people than in any other place in the world, I beheld the national capitol building, the dome shining like a jewel in the spring rain. I thought,, 'Here is the place—the heart of the nation—where I can really do something to help things along.' When I closed my books and locked my classroom door back home, I felt I was leaving a job of minor importance for one of real value to a nation at war. "It took four months of hard work for Uncle Sam to make me realize the situation in its proper perspective. As September drew near, letters came to me from different sections of the state, telling of the desperate need for tachers. Nebraska newspapers reached me, commenting on the seriousness of the situation. I was disturbed. I had reasonably important duties in a government office to perform, but on the other hand I knew that to win this war, to obtain a satisfactory world afterward, we must have teachers in our schools. Everytime I looked about me in Washington, I could see the pages of history unfold. I could see men like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and scores of others sweating and toiling to create a nation. I could see the value of human character in the upbuilding of our country.

Two important conferences are finished. Churchill will soon return to London now that he and Roosevelt have completed plans for the European invasion and the war in the Pacific. Joseph Davies has left Stalin to report back to the President. What he will report has not been revealed but we hops it is permission to use Russian bases from which to bomb Tokyo. » • *

In the Spring came our Retreat, and even though it rained and kept us from Longwood. the sun was shining in our hearts as we met to plan for next year's work. The Conference in Richmond brought another high point to the session.

A deep hush was over all as they waited tensely, to see if the fudge would get hard. Of course, it was exam night, too. There were books and notebooks scattered here and there. From the corner could be heard the faint murmer of H20" water": Blzerte is Just above and to the left of Tunis": "What are amphibious animals?'; "Why was Walt Whitman the beginner of modern literature?" The halls are almost deserted now. All trunks are packed and most of them gone to the express office or railroad station. But there are still interesting boxes which say "Eat Toasties three times a day" on the outside and contain a tennis raquet. two blankets, stationery, books, the door number, three potted plants and a foot stool.

Campaigning for greater use of V-Mall, the Navy has run up against but one contrary argument, and asks only a fair hearing in rebuttal. Some Navy men in the field have written relatives and friends that V-Mail Is slower. Actually it isn't, because it enjoys No. 1 priority. Sometimes V - Mail encounters delays, as all mail does, and sometimes there are circumstances which make V-Mail seem slower. When the family receives their son's letter In a few days, whereas their own mail has not reached him after weeks or even months, they Jump to the conclusion that air mail or even ordinary mall is better. Out-going mall may pile up on the coast awaiting transportation. But in-coming mail faces no such problem. As a rule, mall is received in a much faster manner. Ships go overseas heavily laden, often come home empty. Therefore, the false conclusion is reached by the unfair comparison of outgoing V-Mail with incoming ordinary mail. Only in such cases does the Navy admit that V-Mail Is likely to be slower. "If correspondents are informed of these facts", says the Navy Department, "it is believed that there will be a more complete understanding of the mall problems." But the officials hasten to add: "Too much emphasis cannot be laid on the correct and proper addressing of all types of mail, including V-Mall." A wide check-up has shown that V-Mail writers, using a form, are Continued from Page 1 more careful about the addresses Alice Seebert, Tazewell; Mrs. Ann than are those who write ordinary Ware Smith.
